There is a suit for every size and every occasion. First, be honest with yourself and buy short-length suits or take your suits to a tailor to have them altered if you need to. If you’re on the shorter side, a good way to stretch you out and elongate your torso is choosing two-button suits with low button stances.
Nothing dictates a suit’s character more than its lapel. For a modern look, I opted for a two-button jacket with a lapel that is about two inches at its widest point which I can wear with just about any type of shoe, from a lace-up to a sneaker. I suggest staying away from the three-button suits, they tend to be boxy. Finally, I traded my white oxford shirt for a denim one and added a touch of “cool” with a pair of Ray-Ban wayfarers.
